Why manufacturers should quit facelifts.
Why they're completely and utterly pointless.
Every manufacturer loves a good facelift, but the buying public don't. It's a good excuse to waste a million quid on some new headlights and a digital speedometer. I'm sure many of you may disagree, but sometimes, companies release facelifts without you even realising, or sometimes you have to even pinch yourself after realising that a car has been released and facelifted within the space of a year.
Now, as many of you will know, my recently purchased Audi and is apparently the "2021 facelift model", I didn't even realise it had been facelifted. And apparently, the main update was "dynamic and adaptive sports lights", I mean what kind of name is that... And this is where my rant starts, it's about two companies who are doing it right.
First of all, Aston Martin barely ever facelift there models, partially due to budget, but also down to the fact you don't need to make a car any different when they're so close to perfection. My second point is that, the Tesla Model S and X have both bee "updated", yes updated, not facelifted, just a revised light system and some new tech. And that's the way to do it, the Model S was released in 2012, and over its 9 years only 1 mild change has happened, and they really need to do this.
I recently saw some "spy shots" of the "New" Honda CRV, now, is it me, or did they only just release a new CRV?... And that's not where my rant ends, it coming from AUDI and BMW, they keep changing there designs ever so slightly so people buy the latest model. The 7 series for example, released in the new form in 2019, and a very modern car it is, but now, it's being updated for 2021, I mean hopefully the grille will get solved, but really isn't it just a bit to quick to update a car?....
